we're dealing with. that's the same kind of people that are in leadership in iran that chuck hagel wants to go have better relationships with. and i would submit that whoever he were willing to see in tehran, as our ambassador there , would have a high probability of suffering the same consequences that massoud's father-in-law did, the same that his brother did. his brother, such a great warrior, political figure, great charisma, his case he was asked to give an interview to a television crew. he consented not being aware that the television camera was full of explosives and that the cameraman and the reporter were willing to blow themselves up so they could kill such a great afghani hero. so they did and he's gone. how many americans are we going to have to continue to lose in afghanistan? talking to billy and karen vaughn, the parents of great american patriot aaron vaughn, seal team six member, one of the seal team that went after osama bin laden who don't want publicity while they're seal members actively. they don't seek it, don't want it and there's always been agreement that

demand answers. >> could the dear man read the deer sign? >> yeah. >> stephanie: what does chuck hagel have to do with benghazi, nothing? >> absolutely nothing. the whole thing with chuck hagel has to do with lindsay graham getting renominated to run for senate in south carolina. >> stephanie: that's what i was going to say is that the only reason john mccain is doing this is to help lindsay graham? >> i think that's the only reason yes. the american people need to know!

hours the democratically controlled senate will once again hold a test vote on the nominee chuck hagel. he failed to meet the 60-vote threshold earlier this month amid concerns about his record. it was the first time the senate successfully filibustered a cabinet nominee. a final vote could be held tomorrow if hagel reaches 60 votes. >> notice anything different in these pictures? apparently first lady michelle obama's oscar dress is a little racy for iran, so they photo shopped it. during a report on the oscars, the first lady's dress suddenly had a high neckline and sleeves. mrs. obama helped announce "argo" as the winner of best picture which iranian officials also slammed as propaganda for the c.i.a. calling the oscars politically motivated. i actually like the dress on the right. i don't know what that means. >>brian: i didn't know iran had colorforms. what does iran think about the way ben affleck think about the way it was depicted? do you think it was for diplomatic reasons where they captured our hostages? do we skew that? >>steve: iran said it is basically farcical about the
graham saying he was going to try to block the nomination of both chuck hagel, and john brennan, unless he gets some answers. is he being serious here, david? >> well, i think we don't know. i think, clearly, republicans have signaled they're really worried, particularly about the hagel nomination, and of course the senate is a place where a single senator can often hold things up. it is true there are serious questions what went on in benghazi and also this would be a deeply unusual things to do. there were often serious questions about foreign policy betweens the party and the idea of holding up a nomination-- >> schieffer: two of them. >> two of them would be deeply unusual. >> these are very big appointments. these kinds of things happen all the time with smaller nominations and often we don't even find out who the senator is who is holding up the nomination. but this is, obviously, a very public play on the parent of senator grahams and i suspect there will be negotiations behind the scene. >> schieffer: do you think the republicans will back him? john mccain said he does not favor
, they seem to be ready, the american people are with them. he's handling the fight over chuck hagel. it looks like hagel, despite the sort of abuse he got yesterday will be confirmed. but then it's also jack lew. we have heard that may be contentious, john brennan. steven chu announced he's stepping down. that's another opening to fill. not to mention susan rice's. at some point how much of a distraction are these fights and how much political capital do they eat up that sort of takes away from some of these policy things we're talking about? >> well, it's always a risk and it's become obviously a bigger deal in recent years and this is one of the reasons why i think rice stepped out of the running there because she didn't want to become a distraction. obviously any post that has to be filled up will eat up a little bit of your capital, but tames there are a lot of issue that is can't be ignored. the sequestration battles and unlike julian, i do kind of think that's a difference between the gun and the immigration battle in that republicans themselves really want this immigration issue off th
street? >> ted cruise was asking whether or not chuck hagel was some secret jihady or getting paid by the iranian government. >> that's not something he ran on, i don't believe. >> i don't think so. >> whereas, elizabeth warren is asking a simple question about when these banks have lost -- >> it could be an unfair comparison. >> it's classic media attempt to, like, find an equivalent on each side. >> her goal was to get the clip, right? i mean, her goal was to -- snoo her goal was to get the clip and raise the conversation. i'm not sure her goal was to change the dynamic so that she created -- >> for a clip? >> no. absolutely. it's a real live issue. >> you want banks to be tried? >> i think she does. i think -- i'm not saying she was grandstanding per se. i'm just saying that you get into this kind of position. ultimately you have -- there's a practical element, which is you want to go to washington and get stuff done. the question is what does this accomplish beyond this segment that we're having? >> the thing she holds is not -- she succeeded the great ted kennedy who arguably
for why he wants the job. and that's one thing that we really didn't get a sense of from chuck hagel throughout the about three hours of testimony, he really made a passionate case for his love of serving the country, his expertise in this area, and the seriousness with which he would take some of the concerns these senators brought to him. promising more transparency, promising truthfulness when one democrat, in particular, said she has been, quote, jerked around by just about every cia director in her long tenure and time on that specific committee. so he was very persuasive there. when richard talks about the trouble he had with waterboarding, in part, he was really trying to avoid using the word "torture" because it does have a legal implication, and it has such a political implication. that that would have been such a huge headline if he had, in fact, called it torture. so he said pretty much everything around that. he does have the issue of having been part of a time when these things were used in saying, quite plainly, he didn't do anything to try to stop it. nears there's no
council, senator chuck hagel, president and ceo fred kemp, it's my pleasure to welcome you here this afternoon for this discussion on managing the crisis in mali. before introducing today's topic, permit me to say a word about the council's africa center for the benefit of the add yoans, those who are new to us, or those of us joining us for the first time via television or the internet. the africa center was established in september 2009 with the mission to help transform u.s. and european policy approaches to africa by emphasizing the building of strong geopolitical partnerships with african states and strengthening economic growth and prosperity on the continent. they seek to inform with policymakers and the general public of the strategic importance of africa, both globally and more american and european interests in particular. a subject, which, obviously, a commitment you share with us by joining us today which is of strategic importance. we do this through publications and a robot media presence. throughout the work to promote constructive u.s. leadership and engagement i
secretary of defense, chuck hagel, and i am confident and i've expressed that confidence publicly that the men and women of the department of defense will have the kind of advocate they need as the nation emerges from more than a decade of war. lastly, i'm honored to be here, as i said, as a catholic and as a proud graduate of another jesuit institution, santa clara university. my time in the university's undergraduate and law school, in many ways shaped the rest of my life as this education will shape the rest of your lives. i remain deeply thankful to the jesuits for the outstanding education that i received. having gone through seven years of philosophy and syllogisms and theology and cannon law, i have been blessed by all the grace and skepticism that jesuits can give. more importantly, i've been shaped by what i believe is their pragmatic approach to life and to faith and to the issues in general. it was that education and my catholic upbringing, particularly as the son of italian immigrants, that instilled in me the very core principles and values that i carry with me till t

-- sides and they are wrong. guest: that is one of the main selling points about chuck hagel. he is a pragmatist. one of the reasons the president nominated him was that i think he is reading the tenor of the electorate to say this is the kind of person that we want an office, that there is -- and a large proportion of the electorate it is ideal -- ideologically driven and we want more leaders to look at things objectively and with an open mind. i think that was one of the primary reasons why they are very enthusiastic about senator hagel's nomination. i think your point is well taken. host: editors of the new york times asked, it is clear hagel is in the mainstream. the usa today ads of this -- host: richmond virginia on the independent line. caller: i am wondering which american people they are talking about. my sentiments are that the colors before me -- their comments before me, the american people are wondering about what these politicians are basing their assumptions on as far as hagel is concerned. he used to be a parity decent sounding person -- decent sounding person. he
